Book Empire Vol. 12

All the book news you need to know, on a need-to-know basis.

We understand how busy you are and how difficult it is to keep up with all the book news that’s being thrown at you every day. To make your life a little easier, we’ll compound the most important bits into 1 blog post every week, exactly telling you what you need to know. Please don’t worry your pretty little head about the possibility of propaganda or censorship. We’ll do that for you.


We have a serious second contender for the sweetest book news. 6 year old Blake learned about the homeless and that kids are among them. His first concern about these kids was that they don’t have a library, and who can live without books?!
Blake has already learned this and is planning to build the homeless a library.

Long Live Indie Press!

Bret Easton Ellis just can’t sit still. 2014 is his Year of Penny and he will be collaborating with so many strange people, that all we can do is sit back and watch.
Rob Zombie will be his partner in crime for a TV show about the Manson family, Kanye will play in a movie they are making together, Bret will make a tacky looking thriller, a Neo-Noir movie and perhaps, maybe, if he really feels like it, his next novel.
